Hi,
Much of features of this plant resemble with Solanum xanthocarpum
except for the petal colour, I am waiting for further inputs.
Regards,

Yes Nidhan ji, you may be right. White flowered forms have been reported in this species according to the eFlora of Pakistan. Bright colour of leaves and long yellow prickles are characteristic for this species. By the way both S. xanthocarpum Schrad. and S. surattense Burm.f. are now treated as synonyms of S. virginianum L., considered as correct name for the species.
